Just select the "No Broker" option.
This is interesting. I would have assumed that Craigslist would be the place to find the biggest rip-offs. But I've been wrong before!

I think Craigslist is very dicey. I've heard a lot of horror stories.

I've heard alot of bait-and-switching going on on craigslist. That is definitely not the way to rent something sight-unseen! But it's fun to take a look just for the heck of it.

Yeah, I've never heard anything good about Craigslist, at least in terms of apartments or dating

I found this for you as well. You'll like this. Don't ignore the resource based on what "you've heard". I've had success with CL from getting jobs, finding apartments in Chicago to buying and selling stuff. If I made all of my decisions based on what others say, I'd never get anywhere. Check it out YOURSELF.


Mod cut: No links to real estate sites per TOS No, this is not CL. Something Much better. :-)

Don't assume anything until you check it out.

hello, the problem is she cannot check for herself because she plans to rent the apartment from afar. Certainly if she were here, there is no issue with checking out craigslist apartments except for the possibility of lost time and some aggravation. From afar, however, the risks are not worth it. This is the NYC forum. Have you ever looked for an a apartment in NYC?

I checked it out. It has a good search, but only produced 4 apartments that fit my criteria, and none of them featured pictures.

Anyone have any recommendations for post-war high rises in the UES?

Ordinarily, this might be decent advice. But not on this topic, not in NYC and not under these circumstances. Sorry.

> Anyone have any recommendations for post-war high rises in the UES?

There are a million of them. No way to answer an open-ended question like this. For example, in my building, a 10-12 year old mid-rise, there is a one-bedroom available (3rd floor, so subject to traffic noise) for $2650 w/2 free months - that's $2200 effectively in an above avg nice fairly new building.
